Hot on the heels of the last firmware update (ver. 1.1.0) (offering improved recovery time from overheating for the EOS R5), Canon has come out with a new firmware update with improvements for both the EOS R5 and EOS R6.

The last update focused primarily on the EOS R5, however, this new update (ver. 1.1.1), flips that around by focusing primarily on the EOS R6, basically offering the same improvements as ver. 1.1.0 did for the EOS R5.

Let’s find out what’s new and improved for both cameras.
